Wednesday, July 1st is the last day!
As a fan of fashion, I am sad to report that Louis Boston will be closing its doors in July. Louis opened its doors in 1925 and has been an iconic fashion destination for retail for over 85 years.
Back in 2010, Louis Boston moved to Fan Pier on the South Boston Waterfront – a location that was temporary from the beginning. According to an article in the Boston Globe, owner of Fan Pier and developer Joseph Fallon will be building on the current Louis site and offered to move the retail store to 22 Liberty Wharf. Owner Debi Greenberg, 59, decided to retire. Greenberg told the Globe, “There are things that I have been wanting to do that I have never had the time to do,” Greenberg said. “With retail you cannot do it half way. You have to be here, and you have to be involved. I’ve been working for a long time. I don’t really want to be working at 70.”
Before moving to Fan Pier, Louis Boston resided in the old Natural History Museum building in the Back Bay.
So if you want to shop at Louis Boston, you’ll need to make a trip today. The closing coincides with their legendary sale. It’s worth the trip!
